When a child has a birthday around here it’s a big deal. Sometimes however, when mom has a birthday those little life necessities take the front seat. That doesn’t mean that I can’t still have a great birthday. It just means that I need to be smart about it.
The Kitchen Spa
There many little spa treatments on the internet that don’t take more than what I have in my kitchen. In fact picking up a few items at the grocery store wouldn’t hurt my budget for a little pampering. I’m not talking about the latest and greatest massage pillow. I’m talking about little things like an avocado, oatmeal, and honey. Even a little powdered milk for a milk bath would be fun. It’s won’t cost much and I still get a spa day for my birthday.
What The Kids Want To Do
Let’s face it. As we get older we lose our fun. We become self conscious or don’t have time or (heaven forbid) become too mature for that nonsense. Children have a way of bringing the fun back into our lives. They know how to party too. They dance with no fear, are full of belly laughs, and remind us that music is more than just a cultural experience.
Shut The Door
This one is kind of the opposite of the last one, but for the evening I plan to let my husband spend some quality time with our son while I lock the door on the bathroom and enjoy a good book and bubble bath.
Create a Wish List
I like to window shop. I know that I can’t afford everything I want right this moment. Over time however I can pick off some of the things that I added to my birthday list. After all I’m my new age all year. I don’t have to even leave the house to do this. I just hop online and visit my favorite store websites.
Regardless of the necessities in life I can always afford a little chocolate on my birthday. 😉
